Fourth Phase of Implementation of Disengagement Agreement Completed
Israeli forces today handed over to the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) the area covered by the fourth phase of the implementation of the disengagement agreement, thus ending Israel's occupation of a bridgehead on the west bank of the Suez Canal. The handing over took place in the Deversoir area at 1000 hours GMT when Col. S. Gat of the Israeli Forces turned over the area to Col. T. Kuosa, representative of the UNEF Commander at UNEF forward headquarters.
